Interesting stuff as you do get a dedicated ‘build’ phase, but you can still build and fortify your base as the battle rages. Pretty cool.

Those are the nasty little creeps that you saw attacking in waves once darkness fell in the trailer.
Right now Fortnight is inbound for the PC some time in 2015. According to Epic, there’s a possibility that the gam might head to other platforms as well, but there’s nothing on the schedule right now.
